    A salesman at Lehmer's Concord Buick GMC who took an apparent customer for a test drive ended up kidnapped, authorities say.

    A routine test-drive from a Concord car dealership ended with a crash and criminal charges.

    The Lehmer's Concord Buick GMC salesman tells police the customer announced he was stealing the $70,000 van during the test drive.

    The salesman bailed out when the van slowed down.

    Police caught the driver after he crashed into a sound wall.

    The dealership says everything seemed normal as the man gave them a copy of his driver’s license before the test drive.

    The suspect, who was not named by police, was arrested on suspicion of kidnapping, resisting arrest and stealing a car.
